IMHO multiprogramming is as valid a use for memory as any other. Or
even otherwise, it's not something I care to get in design debates
about, it's just how the things are used.

The only trouble is support for what you're doing is unimplemented.

Only you, if anyone. My intentions and patchwriting efforts on the 64GB
and highmem multiprogramming fronts are long since public, and publicly
stated to be targeted at 2.7. Since there isn't a 2.7 yet, 2.5-CURRENT
must suffice until there is.
